I've decided to decrease amount of "separately photographed" pics I take, as it takes simply too much time (~doubling it).

1-10 issues and supplements of JDW 1994 (vol.21) done from cover to cover

 

...14.07.20

https://cloud.mail.ru/public/9dEX/djuwzbp4V/_tmp

Two dozen issues of JDW from 1990, one issue of IDR from 1975, four from 1991 and 11 from 1990 plus supplements, two (out of two stored at RSL) issues of 1998 Jane's Intelligence Review plus supplement,

along with several pages from Military Technology issues from 2000 and 2001, and pages from Jahrbuch der Wehrtechnik Vol.2, Vol.4, Vol.6, Vol.12 were photographed.

Unfortunately even basic processing (put_into_folder-rotate-delete_blurry_pages_and_doubles-rename_properly) takes too much time,

so I've skipped "rename properly" part, and, in order to avoid confusion, put most of those photos into separate temporary folder - about 7Gb or ~6-7k files.

JdWT Vol.12 (which, thanks either to some glitch of my phone's memory or to me forgetting that copying several thousand small files takes a lot of time, especially on old memory card which could go as slow as 50kB/s, and removing memory card while some files were still copying, lost 28 pages, which will be fixed sometime later)

IDR 1975-06

and JIntR 1998

were renamed and put into appropriate folders, though.

Jahrbuch der Wehrtechnik Vol.6 now available from cover to cover.


Also following things were photographed and uploaded to _tmp folder:
International Defense Review 1990-12 with supplement, 1989-01, 02, 03 with supplement, 04; 
all 16 issues of Jane's Defence Upgrades 1997 (Vol.1) stored at RSL (out of 24 published)

I moved all 1990 IDR issues with all pages renamed properly (01, supplement to 02, 05 and two supplements, 06 with supplement) into temporary "a" folder.

Jane's Defence Upgrades 1998 (vol.02) - 23 issues out of 24 published are stored at RSL, and were photographed and uploaded.

Only one IDR issue was photographed (1989-05), and only 2/3 of it. Also uploaded.

issues from 1983-1988 of IDR were photographed and uploaded (except those from 1983 which were photographed today, and will be uploaded tomorrow), though in not-user-friendly way only - without renaming, without deleting duplicates, without identifying and replacing blurry photos. All that takes a lot of time, and was postponed at least until September, as I'm trying to concentrate instead on one activity which actually requires visiting library - that of making photos, up to 9 hours a day, 6 days a week (on average somewhere around 6x6/7x6 though).

If I'll be able to continue to do that until end of this mouth, and not fall into laziness, I might photograph all IDR issues stored at RSL (1975-1991).

some could be available there (some from USA IP adress only, so VPN might be required), I've spent quite some time back in 2017-2018, making requests to GoogleBiooks to show them and other magazines in full view instead of snippet view - more was mentioned in post on p.11 of this thread

 

 

or there https://cloud.mail.ru/public/DF26/vHThkrzpC/Armor/ as separate jpeg files in appropriate folders, though not for long now - I'll delete that as soon as I'll need more space to store photos from RSL (as couple of years ago when they gave 1Tb for free on their cloud, I was stupid enough not to register couple more additional accounts ASAP to get more storage space)

all IDR issues stored at RSL are photographed. This folder contains almost 100 Gb, probably some 70k photos - including about 30k duplicates. Once I delete those, and rename rest, I'll visit RSL for IDR issues once again - to reshoot those photos which turned blurry and unreadable, I expect to find at least couple of hundred of those.
